Cake Batter

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Grease a 8 square pan or round bundt cake pan.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and sweetener of your choice.
  4. In a bowl or electric mixer, mix together the maple syrup, oil, brewed Teeccino and maple extract.
  5. Add the eggs to the mixer for the dairy version.
  6. Vegans: Soak the ground chia seeds in 6 tbsp water. Add the soaked seeds to the liquid.
  7. Add the Greek yogurt, sour cream, or applesauce to the liquid and mix thoroughly.
  8. Blend in the dry ingredients slowly until thoroughly mixed with the wet.
  9. Add the chopped pecans and mix well.


  1. In a bowl, mix together the sugar of your choice, flour, and the melted butter or vegan butter alternative.
  2. Mix well with a fork.


  1. Pour half of the batter into the greased pan.
  2. Sprinkle half the streusel evenly over the batter.
  3. Spread the remaining batter over the streusel.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining streusel over the batter.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes. Test with a toothpick - if it doesn't come out clean, bake for 5 minutes more or until the toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Transfer to a platter by tipping the cake onto a temporary platter or pan. Then tip it back onto the platter you want to serve it on so the streusel is showing on the top of the cake.


  1. Blend the confectioners sugar with the maple syrup. The topping should be the right consistency to drizzle off of a spoon, so add more maple syrup if necessary.
  2. Drizzle ribbons of the topping over the top of the warm cake.
